MSA2312I expand volume

Hi!

      We have a MSA2312i with a RAID 5 (5 disk SAS + 1 SPARE) . These disks were of 300Gb , we have replaced them with new disks 600Gb (1 disk for time) and we want to know if we can expand the volume with the new space..... The expand volume option in web interface is in gray  ......  Thanks

Re: MSA2312I expand volume

The vdisk needs to be deleted and recreated using higher capacity hard drives to make use of the additional space.

Unfortunately, there are no options to use additional space when drives in an MSA vdisk are replaced with higher capacity hard drives one by one.
